Shared Print Monograph Summits

Shared Print Monograph Summits

In 2018, with the support of the Mellon Foundation, the Eastern Academic Scholars' Trust (EAST) convened two summits focusing on shared print. These invitation-only summits are based on the premise that we are at a transitional moment in shared print programs and have an opportunity to seize on this moment to envision a broader national perspective. Accordingly, the goal of the April summit was to bring together key stakeholders from monograph shared print programs to look at how best to work together to ensure a robust future for shared print. The December summit reconvenes most of the original participants and as well as new voices, to follow up on the priorities identified during the April Summit.
